Industrial Accident Attorney Rob Ammons Files Lawsuit After Machine Kills Lubbock Man

A Lubbock factory worker attempting to fix a malfunctioning hydraulic press machine at Diamond Plastics Corporation’s Texas facility was fatally injured when he became pinned by the machine.

In a lawsuit filed by Rob Ammons on behalf of the children of the 38-year-old worker, it is alleged that Diamond Plastics failed to provide a safe workplace and failed to provide safe equipment for the man to work with.  Ammons contends the employer was aware of repeated improper functioning of, and dangers posed by, the machine in question but failed to take remedial measures.  Ammons further alleges that Diamond Plastics failed to have in place at the facility adequate operational, safety, inspection, maintenance, lock-out, warning and training programs and procedures with respect to the machinery its workers were required to use in the performance of their jobs.

The lawsuit includes the manufacturer of the machine in question, Plastics Extrusion Machinery, Inc., which Ammons claims failed to conduct a proper product hazard analysis in its design of the machine.  It is alleged that the machine in question lacked appropriate guards which would prevent injury-producing contact and that the machine also lacked adequate warnings and instructions.
